Three Kings Day Parade Celebrates El Barrio Unido

El Museo del Barrio's Three Kings Day Parade graced the streets of El Barrio on January 4, 2013 full of kings and queens for the day. There were kings on stilts and kings accompanied by camels, of course, and other participants, many of them students, ready for the parade wearing their own handmade crowns.

This year the museum celebrated the 36th Annual Three Kings Day Parade, when as every year, thousands of children, parents, teachers, artists, residents, and political and community leaders participate. Museum officials estimated this year's participation at 4,000. The parade kicked off on East 106th and Park Avenue and ended at East 116th, by El Barrio's iconic La Marqueta.
